Live match report from Stamford Bridge, CFC 2-1 Bolton. Mourinho's team make heavy-weather of it
If ever there was a game Petr Cech would expect to keep his 221st CFC clean sheet it would be Bolton at home in the League Cup. Denied. 1-1

Another great League Cup night; the only top-level knockout football pre-Xmas. Bloated Europa League should embrace KO-from-the-start too
The famous Kolo Toure 'innocent face'
The Boro XI currently on the pitch at Anfield now includes three Chelsea loan players (Blackman, Omeruo & Bamford)
Tuesday column. Van Gaal's slow start at Bayern is not comparable to MUFC this season. The PL is much less forgiving
Like Denis Law 40 years earlier, Frank Lampard finds himself scoring for City against old friends. Report from Etihad
Mourinho won't respond to what "Pellegrino" says about him. Mourinho's called him that twice.

Chelsea have dropped tenor who sings 'Blue is the Colour' on CL nights. Can't say I'll miss him. Hope he gets himself a more suitable gig

The thermostat in my Dortmund hotel room really reminds me of Droopy dog. Troubling
Found this Hollywood Boulevard-style tribute to Paul Lambert on Borussia Dortmund's 'Walk of Fame' #AVFC
Tuesday column. It's not a question of if MCFC can win the Champs League, but when. The margins among elite are small
Arsenal's injury/illness problems. Chambers has tonsillitis, will Bellerin or Flamini start at right-back tonight?
Arsenal in Dortmund with as much German WC-winning experience as their hosts. Can they get beyond Champs Lge last 16?
